Call for Papers: Caribbean Postgraduate network Research Student Workshop

Call for Papers: Caribbean Postgraduate Network Research Student Workshop
to be held at the Institute for the Study of the Americas, University of London 11th May 2011, 10.00-6.30pm

The Institute for the Study of the Americas is pleased to host the second annual workshop for research students working on any aspect of the Caribbean and its diasporas. Postgraduate students located in discipline-based departments often find they are the sole scholar within their department working on the Caribbean. This workshop seeks to bring together students who share a common interest in the Caribbean to share their work with other regional specialists in a friendly and informal setting.

The workshop will be led by Dr Kate Quinn, Lecturer in Modern Caribbean History at the Institute, and Steve Cushion, a late-stage doctoral student. Doctoral students at all stages in their research and from all humanities and social science disciplines are welcome. Participants in last year’s workshop will be welcome to submit a paper on the progress they have made in the past year.

Those wishing to present a paper are asked to submit a short abstract by 15th April 2012. All attendees should submit a short outline of their research interests by the same deadline. We also encourage you to submit any questions or issues you would like us to raise at the workshop for an open discussion on undertaking research on the Caribbean.

Registration is £10, and the workshop will be followed by a rum reception. Lunch will be included. Students interested in attending and in presenting their work should contact Kate Quinn on and Steve Cushion on
